It is the policy of Huttonsville Correctional Center to maintain a mechanism that ensures its mission of providing a safe, secure, and humane correctional institution for the public, staff, and offenders; and is fulfilled in a professional and efficient manner.

History:

The Huttonsville Correctional Center is located near Huttonsville in Randolph County, Approximately 18 miles south of Elkins, WV on U.S. Route 250. It was created by an act of the Legislature in 1937 to relieve overcrowding at the West Virginia Penitentiary. It remained a branch of the parent institution until 1947, at which time the Legislature established it as a separate entity – the West Virginia Medium Security Prison. In 1970, the center received it’s current name by legislative act.

With the recent completed construction of the new 240 bed addition, the capacity of the Huttonsville Correctional Center is 890. Living quarters at this facility consist of military style dormitories in the original building and single cell housing in the new units.

The parole contacts the sentencing judge, the prosecuting attorney, the victim of the crime, and people in the community several months before the inmate is due to see the parole board and asks for their input on whether or not the parole should be granted. Their opinion carries a lot of weight with the board. Also, the nature and severity of the crime has a lot to do with the decision whether or not to grant parole.

I'm sorry. 22 years is a lifetime.

It's really hard to say with long term sentences like that. Hopefully third time up for him will be charm.

He will have to send you a form to complete and return to the visitation officer. They will then run a background check and notify him whether or not you have been approved to visit. It can take anywhere from 2-6 weeks.

I'm actually going to Huttonsville tomorrow to see my boyfriend for the first time since January (when he was transferred there). I haven't been there before, any words of advice?

Dress nice, no see through tops or pants... white shirts are especially not worn because they say they can see your bra through it, and make sure your shirt is long enough to cover top of pants. For the most part the visits are great. Use the bathroom before you go in. There is no foot in the visitation room, only a water fountain, and no smoking. You can visit up to four hours but if you're coming from Pittsburgh, you could call in advance to the officer in charge, and they might extend you another hour or two. They used to do that for me and mine. Hope all goes well. If you ever go back again, there is a Pastorial Center there that will let you spend the night for free if you call a week in advance, and it's very close to the prison. If you need the address and phone number, let me know.

Take care!

He is the air that I breathe :). I havent been to see him there yet. He just got denided :( parole and is due again in Sept. if not then his exected day out is 2014. I cant go on that much longer it is killing me not being able to see him. His name is Richard Anthony Hart. I dont have a vehicle to go and his family is upset at me right now so the best thing I can do is stay away from them right now. But I do love him so much. :idea: So if there is someone out there that can help me or know of a way that him and I can comuicate over the internet please tell me. I know they used to let them get online not sure if they still do or not. :thumbsup:

Welcome to PTO and the WV Forum!

I am very sorry, but inmates in state facilities in WV do not have access to the Internet, so you you will not be able to communicate with him that way. Inmates in most federal facilities are now able to set up prepaid email accounts and communicate with family and friends, however, I don't foresee that happening in our state prisons anytime in the future.

Having someone you love and care for incarcerated is not easy, but hopefully you will be able to find understanding and support here on PTO.

Good luck!
